The cycling guides at Central Park Bike Tours shepherd customers through the Big Apple’s lively core during informative tours and rent out bikes so explorers can discover the city at their own pace. The fleet of 2014 Trek Allant 7 that make up the rental bikes are well maintained for maximum safety and comfort, and rentals are available for a variety of durations. Multilingual guides ferry tourists past Manhattan's and Brooklyn’s storied sights, such as Central Park, Times Square, Greenwich Village, Little Italy, and the location where former mayor Ed Koch was famously encased in ice. A photo tour focuses on scenic locales as shutterbugs artistically document their surroundings.

Leading more than 30 bike tours across the nation, the cycling enthusiasts at Bike and Roll fuel a passion for healthy, eco-friendly transportation via guided tours and self-guided rides atop rental bikes. Their fleet of two-wheelers stakes a claim to Trek bicycles—the same brand that propelled Lance Armstrong to victory—and other recreation, transportation, road, and children's bikes. Riders can pedal behind a guide during the Ride 'Round Manhattan tour, which circles the Statue of Liberty and the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial before cruising along the Harlem River bike path. More adventurous cyclists can board rental cycles on their own and confer with free maps to conduct a jaunt across the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges while drinking in the skyline and making Waldo spottings along the river. Bike and Roll also outfits patrons with other specialty transportation, such as in-line skates, segways, and magic carpets programmed to swing past the tops of only historic buildings.:m]]
